Introduction: Working Mini Lego Pinball Machine

Learn how to make this working pinball machine completely from Lego.

Step 1: Watch the Video

Step 2:

Start with a 4 x 10 plate and make 2 legs that stick out 2 studs.

Step 3:

Start building upwards, use some headlight bricks so we can add some obstacles later.

Step 4:

Smooth off the edges with some tiles and slopes.

Step 5:

Keep building up and then you'll want leave a flat space on top.

Step 6:

Next we'll need to build this assembly and then hook 2 small rubber bands on the back.

Step 7:

Now place that assembly upside down on the top of our main assembly.

Step 8:

Next we'll need to clamp it down with a plate.

Step 9:

Now attach some pieces with some sort of hook on them and hook the rubber bands on.

Step 10:

Keep building up the sides.

Step 11:

Use a 1 x 4 plate and a gear plate stacked together to make the flipper buttons.

Step 12:

Place the flipper buttons face down on the gears in the gap on top, leaving 2 teeth sticking out.

Step 13:

Place a 1 x 10 plate in the gap above the buttons then keep building up, leaving a spot where the ball can exit.

Step 14:

Add some headlight bricks on the bottom and attach 2 1x1 tiles for legs, then tile off the top.

Step 15:

Build something to catch the ball (I used a Lego soccer ball), add some obstacles, and start playing.

    This is outstanding! And with the base completed a whole number of different combinations for the rest of the game can be started! Great work!

    Hi!

    THis is awesome and my daughter would love it!! We don't have that extensive a collection- any tips on where to get the necessary bricks?

    Thanks!

    Wow! That is one of the coolest builds I have seen. Great use of SNOT (studs not on top) too. Now I get to dig through my collection of bricks to try and build this myself.

    Thats Awesome dude! I love lego and I know how hard it can be to make a creations that smooth!
